"Feargal Ward’s extraordinary feature documentary resonates many days after my first watch... It is a singular encounter, a moving encounter, and I won’t forget it. By itself, it would be enough to make the film worth watching. ...Despite Reid’s deep peculiarity and quiet dysfunction, it is not the world of his crumbling Leixlip farm but the Ireland which surrounds it which comes to seem most in need of explanation and redemption. It’s our world, not his, which is the more troubling. I would urge anyone who values creative documentary filmmaking to seek out this excellent, haunting and original film."
